Speak What You Seek

If you’re going to live your life of victory, you must speak positive words of faith (Philippians 4:8) and declare what God says about you and your situation.

When the prison doors shut me in and the lights were turned off, darkness filled my heart and the easiest thing to do was give up and get depressed. 

When the time of adversity comes, what do you say about your situation? Do you declare that you’re an overcomer through Christ? Or do you repeat the words, “I’m doomed and stuck, there’s no way out of here.” AJ had to face the consequences of his actions, but knowing that God won’t leave him nor forsake him (Hebrews 13:5) throughout his ordeal made it a lot easier to walk through that journey.

Anyone can be positive during times of plenty, health; when everything else is going well. But the way you respond when adversity comes will make you or break you. When you’re standing alone in the middle of your cell at night, when everyone else has turned their backs on you, when you’re awaiting trial in court, when you’re down to the wire and your cheque balance is on the red and the bills pile up, when you’re lying in bed with sickness – what you say will have a direct impact on the outcome.

 Don’t look at the facts of your situation. Look at the truth of God’s Word. Declare His truth over your situation. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13). No matter how inadequate or unqualified you may feel, remember that He promised to strengthen you and enable you.
